The whole tight end position has been a disaster this season for fantasy owners. Other than Rob Gronkowski (and it took him a few weeks to get up to speed), it has been really hard to rely on any specific tight end.
Aaron Rodgers finished Week 8 with the second-most fantasy points among quarterbacks (Derek Carr and his 513 yards, 4 TDs led the way). Rodgers has thrown seven touchdown passes over the past two weeks. This Sunday, he faces Indianapolis, which has allowed two TD passes to every quarterback faced over the past six weeks except for Alex Smith last week.
After some lackluster fantasy performances from the so-called top defense/special teams (DST) units in the league in Week 8, the Kansas City Chiefs have claimed the top spot for Week 9. The Chiefs have an interception in each of their past three games. Blake Bortles, who the Chiefs face in Week 9, has thrown three interceptions in the past three games?
Through eight weeks, Adam Vinatieri is still the No. 1 kicker in terms of fantasy points (depending on league scoring). Facing the Green Bay Packers in Week 9, he should have plenty of opportunities to add to that total. He's made five field goals from 50 yards or beyond, and he has yet to miss a field goal or extra point.
Even with six teams on a bye in Week 9, the waiver wire report for fantasy owners looking for replacements or a boost at a particular position is slim. Without major injuries, backup players aren't must-owns. Some of the players on this list are even on a bye in Week 9, so be sure to be aware of what your fantasy team needs and fill those first.
There are so many wide receivers listed as Questionable on the Week 8 injury report that the list had to be split into two parts to make it easier for fantasy owners to digest. Part one covered all those in the early games.
